Chapter 17 She Cannot Wait for You Forever
The smile on Robin’s face froze in an instant.
He never thought that Anaya would actually call Lexie over.
It seemed that Anaya was determined to cut ties with Joshua.
Joshua angered Anaya away in the end.
“Mr. Orbison, I’m really sorry. Joshua has caused you trouble.”
Lexie’s voice was soft and polite, but Robin could read the other meaning.
Lexie was seeing herself as Joshua’s wife.
Lexie walked over and wanted to help Joshua up. “Joshua, I’ll send you back.”
Before she could touch Joshua, Robin suddenly reached out to stop her. “Ms. Dunbar, it might be difficult for a girl like you to send him back. Let me do it.”
Robin’s driver could send him and Joshua home. It was not a problem at all.
The reason why Robin called Anaya was to create a chance for them to get along.
Anaya did not want this opportunity, but he could not let Lexie take it.
How could Lexie not read his meaning?
Robin called Anaya first. Obviously, Robin did not acknowledge Lexie and Joshua.
Even though Lexie really wanted to fall out with Robin, she held back and said in a soft voice, “Since I am here, I can
share your burden.”
Lexie’s voice was very soft, but her strength was not small. She forcefully pushed Robin away and helped Joshua up.
Robin wanted to pull Joshua over, but Joshua shook off his hand. “Don’t touch me!”
Robin gritted his teeth.
What a disappointment!
No wonder you angered Anaya!
He did not want to care anymore!
Seeing that Joshua was closer to her, Lexie smiled secretly and helped him into the car alone.
Joshua was so drunk that he was delirious, and he kept muttering something.
The bar was full of people, and Lexie did not hear clearly.
When she got out of the bar, she heard Joshua murmur, “Anaya, I’m sorry…”
The smile on Lexie’s face instantly disappeared, and she felt terrifyingly cold.
When Joshua woke up, it was already morning.
He was familiar with this room.
It was Lexie‘s hotel suite.
Why was he with Lexie?
As he was thinking, the bedroom door was pushed open and Lexie came in with porridge.
“You‘re awake? I just made something to eat. Try it.”
She placed the plate on the bedside table and picked up the bowl of porridge. “Let me feed you.”
“Did I offend you last night?” Joshua asked as he took the porridge.
“No.You went to sleep when you came back,” Lexie said.
Lexie had a sense of propriety. She had not officially started a relationship with Joshua yet. If she rashly slept with Joshua, it would only make him distance herself.
Lexie watched him eat and pretended to ask casually, “Why did you go to drink last night? Do you have any trouble?”
Joshua‘s hand that was holding the spoon paused and he said casually, “It‘s about work.”
“Is that so? Don‘t give yourself too much pressure and relax occasionally.” Lexie clenched her hands on her knees.
Joshua finished eating and quickly left the hotel.
Lexie packed up and left the hotel.
Last night she had guessed that Joshua would go to find Anaya. After Joshua left, she secretly followed him.
Sure enough, Joshua‘s car stopped outside Anaya‘s house for a night and went to Riven Group after dawn.
In the past, Joshua would never lie about Anaya‘s things.
But today, he had concealed it.
It meant that in the corner of his heart there had developed a hidden feeling.
Right now, it might just be a small seed, but if he let it grow, it would become a towering tree sooner or later.
Lexie couldn‘t wait anymore,
She had to get Joshua and Anaya to divorce as soon as possible!
Anaya made breakfast for Adams in the morning. It was already eight o‘clock when she came out of the hospital. There was a traffic jam. When she arrived at the company, it was already half past nine.
“Ms. Dutt, Ms. Dunbar is waiting for you in the reception room. She said that she had something important to tell you,” Tim said.
Anaya nodded and went to the reception room.
There were no outsiders, so Lexie removed her disguise and revealed her original mean appearance.
She mocked, “It‘s good to work at your own family‘s company. You can come whenever you want.”
Anaya smiled and said, “It‘s quite good. I have so much money that I can‘t spend it all. I don‘t have the motivation to work at all. I envy some people who have endless work to do all day. It‘s so fulfilling,”
Lexie choked. She originally wanted to say a few weird words, but she did not expect Anaya would contradict her. Lexie whispered unwillingly. “It‘s just a third–rate company, what are you proud of.”
Anava pulled out a chair and sat down. “What is it? Don‘t tell me you came here today to inspect my work.”
“No, of course not.”
Lexie stood up and walked to Anaya. “Anaya, you are really capable. Recently, Joshua has been ignoring me because of you. It even made me feel a sense of crisis…”
“What do you want to say?” Anaya raised her eyebrows.
Lexie smiled. She suddenly took something from her bag and stuffed it into Anaya‘s hand.
Without waiting for Anaya to react, Lexie grabbed Anaya‘s hand and stabbed her own abdomen.
Lexie revealed a triumphant surtile on her face, and then she screamed.
As soon as she screamed, the siren of an ambulance sounded downstairs.
It was just in time.
Anaya looked coldly at Lexie.
She could feel that there was something hard protecting Lexie‘s stomach.
As for the blood, it should not be hers.
It was probably a blood bag prepared beforehand.
The acting skill was so clumsy. Anaya did not even want to cooperate with her to reveal a panicked expression.
As for why Lexie did this, Anaya could probably guess a bit.
She kicked Lexie‘s leg. “Be more quick–witted later, and make Joshua divorce me. Don‘t overreact. Do you understand?”
Lexie kept screaming, which made Anaya upset.
Lexie, who was groaning on the ground, was stunned.
Before Lexie could ask why, the medical staff she had arranged in advance rushed in and carried her on a stretcher.
The employees outside were all frightened when they saw Lexie coming out with blood all over her body.
Anaya walked out and said, “This is a newly invested film. You don‘t see it. Understand? If this film were to leak out…”
Anaya glanced around the office. “What consequences would it be? You know that.”
The employees present hurriedly nodded.
Anaya said no more and went downstairs to follow the ambulance.
After Joshua left the hotel and went home to change his clothes, he called Robin, “Why am I in Lexie‘s room”
Robin told him what had happened last night. In the end, he said, “Joshua, listen to me. Anaya is really angry this
